Since I’m just starting to work on my first set of binds, but I want to contribute some content, I thought I’d post a quick grab of one of my custom covers I’m working on. The first batch of books I send off to LBC will all have custom covers. I wanted some sort of template to use – thinking I’d have different ones for Marvel and DC.
Using the Essential and Showcase volumes as a starting point, here’s what I’ve got so far for Shogun Warriors 1-20 (and Fantastic Four #226).
Still very much a work in progress – but it’s getting close. I’ve got to come up with a consistent spine design. Might use something similar to the DC Showcase Presents books and change it up a little for Marvel.
The background on the back cover is a page from Shogun Warriors #1 with a half-tone filter applied and then the colors overlaid on it. I think it came out looking pretty cool.
